Plant-soil feedback special issue in J Ecol

A new special feature on plant-soil feedback has just been published in Journal of Ecology. With Paul Kardol (lead author), we wrote one of the articles. The article reviews temporal aspects of plant-soil feedback. One of the conclusions is that more work is needed to understand how long-term changes in abiotic conditions (e.g. changes in soil nutrient availability during long-term pedogenesis) can influence the strength and direction of plant-soil feedback. It is not a coincidence that this is one of our current research projects.
